Narcise / Jen Bradford

Jen was raised near St. Louis and comes from a family of makers. From upholstery and furniture building to sewing (and sowing), She has had the benefit of being surrounded by multiple generations of family who are skilled in their craft and eager to teach the next generation. Narcise is the outlet for her own need to make by combining the materials and techniques of those who came before me in ways they never imagined. Her pieces are entirely hand-crafted by her, using pre-refiner reclaimed/re-cycled metals, wood scrap from guitar manufacture, sustainably hand-harvested botanicals, foraged horn and quartz that is sustainably mined on a small family-owned and operated mine in central Arkansas. She hopes you’ll love wearing it as much as she loves making it.

Red Herring Illustration / Jeffrey Johnson

When Jeffrey Johnson was in high school, he wanted nothing more than to be a muppeteer. He studied every book he could find, drew pictures, built several small puppets. Somewhere along the line though he realized that he enjoyed designing and making things more than he enjoyed performing. So he did the only sensible thing, and got a degree in printmaking. Now he does archival reproductions of illustrations, in addition to limited edition poster, screen print, and linocut runs.

Jasmine Raskas / Unus Mundus Art

The reality that everything emerges from and returns to one

Jasmine Raskas’ art is inspired by the colors and shapes found in nature, the philosophy of a collective consciousness, and the theories of reality that unite science and soul. To be certain is not to know. The goal of her art is to make you smile and then smirk. She invites you to slow down and think. Take a moment to wonder why. Remember how tiny we are compared to the stars, and yet how big can be a single heart. Feel that we are all in this together and believe that every moment is as beautiful as you make it.

Mirka M Fette

Mirka Fetté is currently president of the Saint Louis Watercolor Society  Her background in architecture and art inspire her to be experimental in applying new techniques.  She has studied with numerous nationally known artists.  Textures and patterns in nature are of particular interest to her.  Printmaking has opened up a whole new territory that allows for different kinds of expression.  She enjoys fine art printing because there is tremendous opportunity to different textures using layers.  The prints can take on a bas relief quality that is very pleasing and the layering inherent to printmaking tells a history for each piece.  These prints can be enhanced with collage, watercolors, pastel or a different printmaking technique if they need something extra.  The creative process is life enhancing and brings a more peaceful, meditative state of mind.  The ability to present her perception of nature is a joy.

Kat Reynolds

Kat’s work specializes in portraiture and architectural photography. She has learned that through subtle changes in her practice, that working with a subjects innate character can bring the most disarming feelings to the work. Through photography she has learned patience, humility, and the need for authenticity within her own practice. Her work generally deals in Blackness from her own perspective and she continually searches for what it means to produce Black work.”
